Solstice Before The Solstice

The winter solstice approaches. But long before December 21 arrives, you could be in possession of your own solstice. That is, if you choose the Samsung Solstice.

Samsung Solstice for AT&TThis Solstice is a touch screen social networking phone. It offers a bright 3 inch color touch screen with tactile feedback and customizable app widgets on the home screen. Facebook and MySpace? They’re just a tap away.

So it’s dark outside. You don’t care. You’re too busy being connected on the Solstice... literally. This phone is built for messaging with a virtual keyboard on the high resolution screen. Incorporating the latest virtual technology keeps the Solstice just a half-inch thin. That’s much less bulk than the models with extra slide out keyboards. You’ll also enjoy extra long battery life with up to 5 hours talk time and over 10 days on standby.

Messaging features include an email client that supports the popular mobile email services, including Yahoo!, Windows Live, AOL and more. SMS text messaging is standard, as it multimedia messaging. Instant messaging uses your own IM application, such as AIM. This smartphone runs on the AT&T 3G network, so you’ll get fast data speeds and access to all the add-on features that AT&T offers for a rich mobile experience.

Did I mention video messaging? It’s supported on the Solstice, along with picture messaging. You can also enjoy video share calling that lets you stream live video during your phone calls. The 2.0 Megapixel camera with 3x digital zoom works as both a standard camera and camcorder. Don’t worry about running out of memory if you take too many photos or movies. You can expand memory with up to a 16 GB microSD memory card.

That memory will also come in handy if you like to take your music with you. This phone supports AT&T Music with an integrated MP3 player that syncs your music library or lets you download new songs on the go.

Do you travel overseas? If so, you’ll want a what’s called a quad band GSM phone. That’s the Samsung Solstice. It’s compatible with the GSM 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz bands that form the basis of nearly all international cellular services.
